Congratulations, if you are looking at a newborn session then you are encountering some very special moments in your life right now. As a mom, I believe babies are true miracles. I feel honored to take pictures of your little bundle during this precious time.
All newborn sessions are held in my home studio so that lighting can be controlled and to take advantage of all the great stuff I have for newborns. If the weather is toasty, pictures could be taken outside too.
When should I book my newborn session?
Please try to book your newborn session out months in advance by letting me know your due date, providing a session fee and completing a client agreement/studio policies. Newborns are best photographed within the first two weeks of life. Once they pass two weeks they are less sleepy, but I can still capture some beautiful awake images. As soon as you book your due date, I will send you all the nitty gritty on how to prep your baby for the session.
What are sessions like?
Sessions are pretty easy for the parents...while I take pictures of your newborn, you get to kick your feet up and relax. You do not need to bring anything but you, your precious baby and anything that will help keep your little one's tummy full.
Your newborn's safety is important!
I take many safety precautions and only pose babies in natural/safe ways. If something does not seem right to you though, know you can say anything…it is your sweet pea and I want you to feel good about what is going on. Please be assured that I take your baby’s safety very seriously.
What will my newborn wear?
I will take pictures of your baby in his/ her birthday suit. I have many super soft tutus, fancy outfits, hats, hair bows, ties, wraps and more. Many of the items are one of a kind and of beautiful quality! I also encourage parents to bring family heirlooms or things that tell their family's story. Other than that, Wartick Photography has everything you need for customized newborn session. I even have gowns for moms!
Can parents and siblings be in the photos?
Mom, Dad, siblings and even pets are welcome to get in a couple of family images too if you purchase a Platinum Cherished Newborn Session. Remember though sessions are usually 2 hours so it is important to have a plan for the younger kiddos.
